Stress No More: Magnesium to the Rescue
We have lots on our plates every day causing a lot of stress in our lives. It’s during this time that a little known mineral can provide much needed support: Magnesium.
Magnesium is often over looked in the importance of our mineral balance.
Many of us are already aware of the need for calcium and calcium supplements but what about magnesium? According to Dr. Christiane Northrup “Magnesium and calcium work together, but magnesium may actually play a more important role. It controls the entry of calcium into each and every cell–a physiological event that occurs every time a nerve cell fires!”
Magnesium deficiency is a huge problem in our society. Dr. Mark Hyman says, “The reason we are so deficient is simple: Many of us eat a diet that contains practically no magnesium — a highly-processed, refined diet that is based mostly on white flour, meat, and dairy (all of which have no magnesium).”
Magnesium Deficiency Can Cause:
- Anxiety and Panic Attacks
- Heart Disease
- Nerve Problems
- Muscle Spasms
- Obstetrical Problems
Magnesium is an antidote to stress
It can help you sleep; it is essentially the relaxation mineral. Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff is a sign of magnesium deficiency. Which means supplementing with magnesium and eating foods that are high in this mineral can be incredibly valuable.
Foods that Deplete Magnesium
Excess alcohol, coffee, salt, phosphoric acid in colas, profuse sweating, prolonged or intense stress, chronic diarrhea, excessive menstruation, diuretics (water pills), antibiotics and other drugs, and some intestinal parasites.
Foods that have a High Magnesium Content:
Almonds, avocado, barley, beans, brazil nuts, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, collard greens, dandelion greens, dates, figs, garlic, kelp, millet, parsley, pecans, rye, shrimp, soy beans, tofu, walnuts, wheat bran, and wheat germ.
